2011 Ford Mustang Pricing Trickles Out

Posted by admin On February - 10 - 2010

The pricing for the new 2011 Ford Mustang V6 and GT models has been leaked for all to see. It looks like we’ll take a bite off the golden goose once again, but boy, would it be worth it to have a 400+ horsepower 5.0 in the stable! The basic 2011 Mustang coupe is slated to have a suggested retail price of $22,995 (destination and delivery inclusive) while the upgrade to the GT trimmings will move the sticker to a starting point of $30,495. Sounds like a hefty jump when compared to the ‘89 GT 5.0 once-owned, which had a window sticker displaying a “lofty” (at those times) $14,000. Times have certainly changed…

2010 Roush Mustang Made In America

In celebration of the Fourth of July, Roush Performance released some figures about just where the parts for their 2010 Roush Mustang come from. The Mustang isn’t entirely American made, but it does clock in at 86%, which, if you consider the growing trend towards globalization in the past few decades, is an incredibly high number. And, that 86% includes all of the stock Ford Mustang parts and the modifications made by Roush.

The Mustang atop the Empire State Building

The Mustang atop the Empire State Building

When Porsche put its Panamera on the 94th floor of the Shanghai World Financial Center, we thought it was pretty clever. Turns out Ford did the same with the Mustang, some 44 years earlier.

Unlike the Panamera lift which took place in a freight elevator with a complete automobile, Ford took apart their Mustang and shipped it in pieces, via a people elevator, to the observation deck of the Empire State Building, then reassembled it.

Ford Mustang X-1

Ford Mustang X-1

Just looking at the pictures of the U.S. Air Force’s Ford Mustang X-1 and Dodge Challenger Vapor makes you realize that they must have found a very crazy tuning company to help them out on this project.  Well, they did:  Galpin Auto Sports, that is perhaps most famous for turning clunkers into cool cars on MTV’s “Pimp My Ride.”  Well, consider these pony cars pimped.

The U.S. Air Force Mustang X-1 has a cockpit.  Not in the way that a regular car’s driver’s seat and gauges is described as a cockpit, but like a jet fighter with an ejection seat.  The engine pumps out 500 nitrous-fed horses and that power is put to the road through the biggest tires on the market today:  345/45R20s.  They had to widen the stock Mustang by six inches on both sides in the rear in order to actually fit the tires.
